Combining the flavors of sweet Turkish apricots with plump Spanish almonds, this is a classic treat that takes us right to the blending of Spanish and Oriental cuisines. It’s a rich treat without being overwhelming, thanks to the earthy, meaty flavor and crunch of the almonds.
Our Apricots and Almonds Cake is a great accompaniment to cheese plates, especially suited for aged sheep’s milk cheese like Spanish Manchego or some of the more salty chevres that welcome that rich sweetness. A glass of red Spanish wine will also match nicely! This super flavorful cake if shelf-stable, which means it’s great option if you’re looking for a healthy, naturally energy-filled on-the-go snack that’s a step above a packaged energy bar.
